Former Bafana Bafana striker Philemon "Chippa" Masinga's mother, Selinah Makgathetse Masinga, 57, died last Friday after a short illness.
She will be buried at Stilfontein Cemetery on Thursday and the service will be held at the Anglican Church in Khuma Location, starting at 8am.
The cortege will leave for the cemetery at 11am.
"We are going to miss her dearly. She was our pillar of strength since we lost our father in 1993," said a distraught Masinga yesterday.
She is survived by three children, Philemon, Meshack and Ernest. - Mcelwa Nchabeleng
